I like sunflowers, math, and poetry. I use tags lots, think lots, and write lots.

Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.

The assignments for the global geo class I’m taking for the summer are so easy and don’t take too long but the textbook readings are soo long and boring! -.-

This is why it hurts the way it hurts.

You have too many words in your head. There are too many ways to describe the way you feel. You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.

You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much.

The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don’t, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.

you have to be mean, sometimes

A couple of my students got into a physical fight yesterday during summer school. And they’re only sixth graders! I had to walk them down to the office and make sure that they weren’t going to do anything rash. It really is important that a flick can be turned on inside of you instantly, if needed.

i want to teach algebra

I’m not against teaching middle school, but I don’t want to teach things like fractions/decimals/division. I want to teach linear functions, variables, and quadratic formulas. Or even better: derivatives, limits, and integrals—calc. I know that right now they’re building a foundation, which is killer important, but it’s not as exciting as a deeper math topic would be. I can handle middle school auras so I wouldn’t mind algebra, or even something higher than that, but I don’t think I’m up for teaching anything lower.

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.
